    Switch vehicles

    Change between approved vehicles in the Driver Dashboard or in the 'Vehicle' tab in the app. Simply tap on the approved vehicle you'd like to use.

    Add a new vehicle

    Before you start, you must have the new vehicle's required documents when adding it. Lyft must also approve the new vehicle before you can drive with it.
    Driver Dashboard:
    1. Log in to your Driver Dashboard
    2. Tap the 'Vehicles' tab
    3. Tap 'Add vehicle'
    4. Wait for our approval (typically within 24 hours), and that's it! We'll let you know once we've approved the new car.
    In the app:
    1. Open the Lyft Driver app
    2. Tap 'Vehicle'
    3. Tap 'Add vehicle'
    4. Wait for our approval (typically within 24 hours), and that's it! We'll let you know once we've approved the new car.
